Pansy Experiments

My husband planted some beautiful pansies this year. I was out with him while he was covering them with straw before the cold snap we're currently experiencing. I had just watched a video by Bryan Petersen (www.ppsop.com) on intentional camera movement -- intended to achieve an impressionistic look to the photograph -- so thought I'd experiment with that concept. The day was very gray and overcast, so it allowed for a longer-than-usual shutter speed. This was my favorite of the images.

I had to grab a few macros while I was out there. Since I wasn't using my tripod I didn't really get but one "keeper."
